This is the two-wheeled vehicle Lit Motors founder Daniel Kim hopes will be the future of transportation, and it’s called the C-1.

What you have here is a gyro-stabilised electric vehicle which Lit Motors say will be on sale this year.

The two gyros – housed under the seats – keep the vehicle upright, even in the event of a collision according to Lit Motors. Which if true, is quite impressive.The electric motor will be able to propel the C-1 to a claimed top speed of 120mph, with a range of up to 200 miles. Charging will take six hours on a 120V connection.

Despite its diminutive size, the C-1 has room for a driver and passenger. Like a bike it leans in to corners, but it also has seatbelts and airbags.

With so many bike accidents in Koh Samui, could this be the answer?
